It is in the darkest of times when the smallest amount of light becomes the most effective. When the overwhelming weight of doubt and the consuming presence of depression shroud every circumstance, hope is often the thing that seems the greatest distance away. Light on the Fringe offers a heartening look into the realities of depression and fashions a biblical perspective that will give renewed life to a hope that endures.
“I read this manuscript on a day when I felt troubling thoughts tugging at my heart. I found challenge, clarity, concrete hope and – best of all – some moments of Aha! That’s what’s going on.”
Elisa Morgan – CEO, MOPS International
“Having finished Light on the Fringe, I am left appreciating their handling of true and false guilt, the need for authenticity, how depression has been stereotyped, and their thoughtful depiction of biblical characters who faced depression. I found this book warm, helpful, Biblically solid, and full of hope.”
Randy Alcorn – Author of Heaven, The Treasure Principle, and Deception
Demystifying Depression for Christians by Dr. Gregory Knopf

Depression, along with its causes and treatments, can be understood. Don’t let confusion and discouragement paralyze you into a state of hopelessness and surrender. Knowing the “big picture” that is presented in this book can empower you to find the answers and take the steps to get help for yourself or your family and friends. As Dr. Knopf states in the book, “more than 90% of people can experience a full recovery if they are accurately diagnosed and treated.” Now is the time to break through and get started on that journey out of depression!
